Alabama Disability Lawyer BIRMINGHAM

If you live in Birmingham Alabama-or anywhere in Jefferson County, Alabama*- and have been denied Social Security Disability benefits, or SSI benefits, don't give up. The vast majority of disabled persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits, regardless of their medical condition, are denied disability benefits on their initial application. Many of those applying for disability benefits believe that given the Social Security Administration's opinion that they are not entitled to Social Security Disability benefit here in Alabama, but that is not necessarily the case. If you are denied Social Security Disability benefits, don't give up, call an experienced Alabama Disability Lawyer at Powell and Denny

In order to be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, you must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of being disabled. In making this determination, the Social Security Administration follows a five step sequential evaluation process in order; if the Administration determines that you are not disabled at the end of the first step, their evaluation will continue to the next step of the evaluation process until it has been determined that you are either disabled or not. In our last blog we discussed the second step of the evaluation process, in this blog we will explain step three.

At step three, the Social Security Administration looks to determine whether the claimant's impairment(s) meets or equals one of the definitions of a disabling condition found in the listings in the Code of Federal Regulations. These are lists of impairments considered to be severe enough to prevent an individual from working in a full time sustained capacity. If you match the requirements of a listing impairment, you will automatically quality for Social Security Disability benefits. If the Administration does not find that you meet or equal any of their listings, they move to the next step.

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, but you believe that you meet the legal definition of disabled, don't give up. Call Powell and Denny today.
